About Tiffen

These filters absorb Ultra Violet (UV) light. Film is more sensitive to Ultra Violet light than our eyes. This often shows up as a haze or a bluish cast, especially when shot from high altitudes and from long distances, particularly over water.

UV filters also help protect your lens from dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and damage from cleaning.

Since they absorb no normal light and have no effect on color or contrast, they can be kept on your lens at all times.

Tiffen Ultra Violet filters are available in a variety of absorbtion levels and sizes.

UV filter ---------- Standard UV. Most popular protection filter.
UV MC -------------- Multi coated for extra flare protection.
UV Warm ------------ Combines UV with Tiffen's '812' warming filter.
Haze 1 ------------- Absorbs 75% of UV light.
Haze 2 --------------Absorbs 100% of UV light.
Haze 15--------------Absorbs 81% of UV light.
Haze 16--------------Absorbs 86.5% of UV light
Haze 17 ------------ Absorbs almost all UV light.
UV Wide Angle Thin - UV filter for use with wide angle lenses.

Note! Tiffen wide-angle filters have low profile rings to prevent vignetting which can occur when using standard filters on ultra wide angle lenses. They do not have a front thread, and can not accept standard snap on lens caps

Fine filter, but....

I bought this filter for use on a Nikon 18-200 general purpose zoom. It is more filter than is needed for that lens, as I found after purchase that it is extra thin and purpose designed for avoiding distortion at extreme wide angles. When mounted, it keeps me from using the Nikon Lens Cap that came with the lens. The external threads are so thin that the lens cap can't grip onto it. I bought a less expensive Hoya with thicker threads, and can't tell any difference in the photos from this l...

I bought this filter for use on a Nikon 18-200 general purpose zoom. It is more filter than is needed for that lens, as I found after purchase that it is extra thin and purpose designed for avoiding distortion at extreme wide angles. When mounted, it keeps me from using the Nikon Lens Cap that came with the lens. The external threads are so thin that the lens cap can't grip onto it. I bought a less expensive Hoya with thicker threads, and can't tell any difference in the photos from this lens, even at the 18mm position. Net, if you are a pro, and know what you need, go for it - it is extremely well made. But for us average bears just looking to protect a lens, it's overkill.

Nikon lens cap does not fit thin filter.

I was disapppointed that the recommended filter (thin) would not take the lens cap I bought at the same time from you with the lens. I went out and bought a filter that would take the lens cap. This is my second disappointment out of two orders with your company. Previously I ordered a filter for protection and got a polarizing filter instead. So I went elsewhere and bought another filter.

Tiffen 72mm UV wide angle lens filter

By

from Rancho Cucamonga, CA  -  Casual Photographer

Works great on my EF-S 15-85mm Lens. Some other reviews say the lens cap will not stay on because of it's thin mount. I did not have this problem. My lens cap stayed on with no problems.

Great UV

By

from Harlingen, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

As many users would say that the lens cap does not hold on the UV filter, this is true, but it is thinner that the regular filters, this is to avoid increase the vignetting problems that most of the wide angle lenses have. Great filter by the way!!!

SUPER

Great protection for your lens with no clarity loss to your photo. Plus being a wide angle filter there is no vignetting as you sometimes get with a standard filter.

Works great!

By

from Rathdrum, ID  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This filter is great! I like the thin quality. Only draw back is the lens cap does not stay on. There isn't enough of an edge to hold the cap on.

Nice lens cap...

By

from TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

I received this product in a package with a lens and I have mainly been using it to protect the glass. I don't usually take it off though and there are a few slightly noticeable advantages with the filter attached. It isn't exactly Hoya quality but for the price it's a nice filter.
